How do you store out of season clothing?

12 years ago

I'm in a small house with 3 teeny packed closets. I would like to store away my clean winter sweaters and such that I won't be wearing until the fall. My dresser and armoire are stuffed to the gills. I was thinking about purchasing some plastic (air tight) storage bins and filling them with the winter clothes. I can store in my basement; however the basement gets very musty and there is some mildew down there (kept in check with bleach spray). I run a dehumidifier 24/7 in the basement, and it does help, but it still has that dank basement smell. Would these plastic bins work at protecting wool, and then later on, cotton summer clothing?

Any other ideas? I'm out of space and can't think of what else to do.
